The remote router is affected by a remote command execution vulnerability.


The remote device is affected by a remote command execution vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input passed via /cgi-bin/file_transfer.cgi. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary commands on the device.
